Week 1 Rankings

Darren Waller Note

There are a lot of questions surrounding the wide receivers and running backs in the Raiders' offense and how they'll be deployed, but Waller is the lone constant. The Panthers were the No. 4 defense against tight ends last year, but not because they were so good against them or anything. In fact, the 8.99 yards per target they allowed was the second-highest number in the league behind only the Cardinals. The reason they allowed so few of fantasy points was because tight ends were targeted just 83 times all season (5.2 times per game) against them. Waller had just two games last year with fewer than five targets, including 10 games with seven or more targets. The yardage should be there, and given the new defensive scheme with more than a handful of new starters, Waller should offer a very stable TE1 floor in this game. He can be considered in cash games if you need to save some money from the elite options.
